Great sound, inspired show.
Of the many things I love about this show, my favourites have to be the slide into NFA (the compendium calls it "awkward" - what do they know?) and the enormous slab of Saint Stephen E-D-A-E jamming towards the last NFA chorus - New Year's already in mind? Wicked, whatever.

Have to agree with rotsaruv
This mix does indeed sound better than the raw Bob Wagner tapes.
-Bass & Treble have a more 'graceful flow' between them, in the other one they seem sort of divorced or separated
-Less "scratchy" / less "clippy"
-4.25 star show (mostly because of mind blowing 2nd set and scarlet>fire and stella>nfa particularly)
-5 star sound, this is my absolutely personal favorite type of sound for any concert recording
-Round to 5 overall
**Now if ONLY we could edit out the heckler shouting "Except for Nuclear Waste!!" during Stella Blue!** (Is that possible?)

Like this remaster better
I know Charlie Miller does a great job but to be honest for me sometimes his versions are little are a little to heave on the treble leading to a harsh sound which leads to listener fatigue. To me this is a bit smoother...
